text-to-speech is in the online bookreader (click the "Speaker" icon in the gray nav bar) not in the pdf reader.

yes that is the bookreader. when you click thr icon that looks like a speaker it does not start? would you post the URL link to the book so I can check.

THANKS for your effort... getting that screenshot up

but cant see this as a browser problem as I go into
documents click on the book icon
and the adobe digital edition ... book reader pdf reader whatever.... appears

it wont open in any other pdf reader I have ... it seems locked into just adobe digital edition
the file is probably encrypted too

as you can see from this screenshot there is a read but it is faded and does nt work ... anyway Ill maybe borrow a few more books soon and retry.... maybe the read aloud option will suddenly start working .... thanks again for your help ......

Is there any way I can get free text from these
borrowed books ?
then I could cut and paste text into an online text to speech I use to get a quality voice and usu a 30 min audio
Here is the text to speech I use

http://www.fromtexttospeech.com/

If I completed the book this way I could then
post an audio version of the book to Int Archice with good quality
female voice.
